Hello, I’m Jewel! I’m a curious girl who loves to explore my surroundings. I have a playful spirit and enjoy a good game of fetch. I’m a little shy at first, but once I get to know you, I’ll be your loyal companion for life. I’m also quite the comedian, always ready to make you laugh with my funny antics. I’m a sweet, friendly girl who loves to cuddle and be close to my people. I’m smart too and willing to learn! If you’re looking for a loving, loyal, and fun friend, I’m your girl!

Fern is super sweet. She may be the sweetest dog I have ever cared for. Her beautiful copper-colored eyes clearly reflect her kind soul. Fern loves people and is great with other dogs. Within 5 minutes of meeting our resident dogs, she wanted to run and play. My dogs love her. Fern came to us with some wonderful, yet unusual, manners for a dog that does not appear to have lived in a house prior to the shelter. She stands still patiently while we put her harness on her. She also loves to ride in the car. She quickly settles down in the back seat and sleeps while riding. She only gets up if you pull into a drive-thru where she hopes to get a “pup-cup. She is a huge Starbucks fan!

Fern loves to run and is so fast that she looks like a ball in mid-air when she is at a full run. When let in from outside, she loves doing zoomies around the room. While she can show a lot of energy, she also loves laying at your feet when you are working at your desk or sitting next to you on the couch. She is a cuddle bug. When she wants to show you she loves you, she will lean her head against yours or place her paw on your hand or knee. Her gentleness is so clear when she is interacting with her people.

Fern is also crate trained. If you leave the crate door open, she will at times opt to go lay on her bed in her crate. She has come a long way on her house manners. Originally, Fern was afraid of stairs, but she now goes up and down them with no problem. She also likes looking at her reflection in the tv (see attached photo). Fern is doing well on her house-training. She would benefit from continued reinforcement of good house-breaking habits including going out as soon as she comes out of the crate and before being let to run in the house. Fern also needs either a high fence or to be leash walked. A four-foot fence will not prevent her from jumping over.

We have not cat tested her because she is interested in our cats and chickens. When she walks by them on the leash, she does not act aggressive toward them, just interested.

If someone wants to rescue and live with a kind, sweet creature, Fern is for them!
